    For some reason my boinc client is not connecting to the server...status says "connected to local host" Tried to re-attach to project but login does not appear when I choose that option. Not sure if it's a windows 8 issue or not. I tried uninstalling and deleting all config files and folders but a reinstall did not resolve the issue.

    Will try going back to windows 7 tonight. fingers crossed.

    Yeah, it's bad too. Been up since 2 AM dealing with this, getting mini naps in here and there.

    No Norton, unfortunately the Consumer preview sucks. I have a friend of a friend who works for M$ and he says it's a totally new kernel Arrrrgh! Maybe yes but I believe it is just simply Win7 enabled for ARM devices. Do not do the Consumer preview. My numbers are down today as a result of testing it. I'm sure once they release thr RTL version boinc will work flawlessly but why upgrade just to get a Metro interface? I call a duck.

    For Desktops at least. :rockout:

    Thanks for the info- I'm not even considering Win 8 unless there are some earth shattering improvements with Bulldozer/Piledriver performance baked into it.... and they can keep Metro :shadedshu

    Ubuntu 12.04 FTW
    I am seriously thinking of switching all my rig to Ubuntu 12.04 when it is released on the 28th. I'll leave my wife with the last remaining windows machine in the house.

    What's the advantage of Ubuntu over Windows 7 x64 besides being free?

    Hey Daimus, your badge should be in your signature area by tomorrow

    If you have not done so yet- go to your user control panel to "Settings & Options", click on "Edit Options" and fill in your WCG Username (near the bottom of the page). That will allow your badge to be displayed.

    Congrats on reaching 100,000 pts and earning your badge :toast:

    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    There's not really a advantage persay over win 7 except for the ease of install, it's free, crash free, stable as a rock, it's free, has a smaller memory footprint, uses way less resources, it's free, runs for months and months without needing a reboot, it's free, perfect for a crunching rig, I get more points generated per result then the windows machines , and oh did I mention it's free. :toast:



    You have to have 100k points to get the badge. The stars are free :toast:
